    We will be traveling with children ages: 1, 3, 5. We will be at Disney 4 days. We will spending 1 day at Epcot because we have a Princess lunch at Akershur. Would our time be better spent leisurely exploring Magic Kingdom or rushing to see 1 park a day

    Hey Misty!

    Hmmm....good question!

    I definitely agree that pushing is not the best for families with little kids. I'm the kind of person who is willing to miss an attraction to watch a street show or browse through a shop. I just LOVE the walking slowly through the parks idea.

    But I don't really think doing one park a day is too hard! That's my usual plan. Since you're doing Akershus, I'm with you, stay at Epcot that day. Then I think you can still do the rest of the parks one per day. Magic Kingdom does have a lot of stuff...but it's still doable in a day. Animal Kingdom is the smallest park so you'll definitely do all of it in a day. And Hollywood Studios--for your age kids, will take one day, too. {And when I say "all of it"...I mean, enough of all of it to get a good feel for the park and be totally exhausted when you're done. I'm pretty sure it's impossible to DO IT ALL!}

    What I'd do is make sure you look through the website, the maps and other unofficial sites (I love!) to see which attractions, etc you KNOW YOU MUST SEE! And make sure those get done. Then everything else will be frosting!

    Does that answer your question?
